Free download Still Life with Tornado Free download ´ Still Life with Tornado Ç PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Sixteen year old Sarah can’t draw This is a problem because as long as she can remember she has ‘done the art’ She thinks she’s having an existential crisis And she might be right; she does keep running into past and future versions of herself as she wanders the urban ruins of PhiladelphiaOr maybe she’s finally waking up to. Still Life with Tornado had me fooledI thought it was all about Sarah and her teenage existential crisis at firstBut it s not just about her It s about her her mother her father her brother her family her future and her pastI ve read dozens and dozens of books dealing with the topic of abuse yet this one manages to explore the theme in an original way while keeping a realistic uality to it AS King s writing moved me It turned my insides into knots It made me hold my breath for at least half of the novel And I probably looked really silly as I read it with my eyes wide open and my mouth agape always waiting and waiting and hoping and hoping for the nightmarish lie to end I was scotched to the screen the whole time It may be a slow paced story but I never once lost interest And granted AS King s writing style may be simplistic if you decapitate paragraphs and look at each sentence but if you behold the whole you will realize how much lyrical dept there is in it The magical realism took me by surprise although I expected it I thought Sarah seeing her ten year old self and other selves were meant to make her realize something about herself and eventually heal her of her crisis but their roles are extremely different As I said before this is not only about Sarah Which brings me to her mother s point of views It was a good thing AS King included them in the plot because they answer uestions many readers may have while reading this Plus it makes her such a likeable and thoughtful charactermother to our eyes At first I thought she was vulnerable but there is strength in her Not everyone would protect the ones they love from harm s way the way she doesA thought provoking story I m hoping will speak to many of its readersBlog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin

I love to be surprised by YA authors who manage to find a new angle from which to write about the same topics too well trodden in YA lit Here is a fresh take on the family abuse scenario Of course this AS King so some magic realism is in the mix Still Life with Tornado follows King s winning formula but this formula still works for me Twisted vivid portrait of abuse survival resurgence that will linger with readers long after the last pag.

Nothing s really original so let s not start alright In eight days of riding around that s what I ve discovered It s raining bullshit Probably all the time I m gonna be unoriginal and repeat what my fri en ds already said don t be fooled and think that it s about an angsty teenage girl It s really not Or maybe it is partially but AS King challenges the way we see angsty teenage girls After all aren t we all a little unfair when judging them What s our goal when we deny their right to be upset about things But now it s been so long that if I bring it up I ll look like a girl who can t let go of things Teenage girls always have to let go of things If we bring up anything people say we re bitches who can t just drop it Think about this for one second Go on Now what does that say about us as a society Because I don t know about you but I m not sure that it stops at some point in our life I can t even express how furious that makes me feel people say we re bitches who can t just drop it This sentence here It brings our world into a cruel and unforgiving light making me want to throw up a little We re so uick to judge people and assume that their problems aren t that bad We re so uick to dismiss their struggles and tell them they re overreacting Especially when they re women But what s less original than identifying with the main character Granted it s not something that makes me feel comfortable Sarah though Why thank you that hit me pretty hardI m perfectionistIn my bubbleI forget stuffPersonal stuffI m not talking about oh crap that letter stuffI m talking about wow how could I even forget THIS happened stuffI have a very good memory thank you very muchIt s just selective unreliable when I m concerned nearly perfect for the most random things including school stuff but comes a big emotion and pfiouuuu here it goes In limbo It does not mean that I will never remember again oh no It would be one million times easier My limbo is usually the most active around I don t know midnight When I can t do anything about it When my mind is going round and round in circles And then I ll forget Again If Sarah moved me Helen destroyed me The family s relationships were so complex and heartbreaking Again AS King brought such realistic characters to life how could they not touch me in my very core Next would be this it looks the same as so many books but really it s different Trust me It may be the touch of magical realism she always incorporates in her stories It may be her writing beautiful but so very honest Or she may be that good but even if the issues she deals with never strike as being original if I may say her books are impossible to compare to anything I read before Finally what s less original than complaining about issues let open in the end So let s do this Except Except I won t because when your stories ring so true there s no such thing as an unrealistic open ending It s only life Period I would say that I was pleasantly surprised except it would be a lie AS King is so constantly good at dealing with somewhat common issues Her stories are just my kind of weird and manage to hit me all the same Of course I recommend For of my reviews please visit
